In this video lecture/discussion from my Spring 2013 Introduction to Philosophy class at Marist College, Dr. Gregory B. Sadler finishes his study of Cicero's work "On the Nature of the Gods," focusing on Cotta the Academic philosopher's discourse in book 3. He examines Cotta's criticism of the arguments for the existence of God(s) made by his Epicurean and Stoic interlocutors, discusses Fideism in religious matters, looks at his contention that reason is not always a good thing, and ends by raising the Problem of Evil.
